king jr., and another bible, the one belonging to president lincoln. and then later on, as the parade was about to begin, the first family, a modern scene here. dad on his blackberry, the girls snapping pictures on their iphones. all day long, abc's david muir has been following this, he was there at the capitol watching history on parade this morning. we begin you with, david. >> reporter: diane, good evening. you're right. we were just a few steps away from the president, with his hand placed on those two bibles. authorities here in washington were estimating 600,000 to 800,000 people would turn out to the national mall to watch this swearing in. but tonight, we just learned from the inaugural committee, just like four years ago, that crowd might have surpassed a million. at the white house, a salute to the president, who was about to be sworn in before the nation. first, that 1.7-mile trip to the capitol. ahead of the president, on the west front of the capitol, a former president and the secretary of state. cheers on the national mall for the clintons, mrs. clinton looking better
. the troops serving overseas. i want to thank them. >> the movie "lincoln" about the politics of passing the 13th amendment was introduced by president bill clinton who could empathize with the 16th president. let's listen. >> a tough fight to push a bill through a bitterly divided house of representatives. winning it required the president to make a lot of unsavory deals that had nothing to do with the big issue. i wouldn't know anything about that. >> well, hosts amy power and tina faye hat their own unique reaction of the president. here they go. >> what an exciting special guest. that was hillary clinton's husband. >> that was bill clinton. >> that was bill rodham clinton. >> that's right. it was. >> it was bill robin clinton. >> wow. many of the movies nominated reflected an american because this movies shows our system may be messy, but most time it works. mark malkin is eonline senior editor. thank you, gentlemen, for joining us tonight. i love themes. i love award shows. i think the golden globe is always the best because you're allowed to drink, which is always an impressive fac
abraham lincolns and one martin luther king jr.'s or the 21 gun salute or the trumpets blowing fanfare, inaugurations tell us something deeper about ourselves and the president we have chosen to lead us. >> we have always understood that when times change, so must we. >> change. this time around that word means something else to barack obama. he used his second inauguration to make an saw dags claim that the coalition that elected him is the next america, the rising generation and he spoke directly to and for them. it was a new american progressivism unleashed. >> for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. >> and you could see in the vast crowd this was a moment won after fierce id logical combat and hard political work. before the speech we spent some time among the

with the president to ask him favors or get their appointments and, of course, that didn't change with lincoln. changed after garfield who was assassinated but the ranks have really closed around the presidency, really hard to get to him. has that had an affect on the role of the president over the past century? >> that's a great question. first of all, the white house itself was open. up until the of world war ii in europe, people could have picnics on the white house lawn. >> right. >> before then people would stroll into the white house. the president would bump into someone at the white house. people would come and ask the president for jobs. after pearl harbor, that's when the security apparatus goes up around the president. but the other thing to mention is what we're using right now, the power of television. what he will vision has done is in one sense made it more intimate with the president but also created a certain distance as well. >> you know, steve, with he talk about george washington, abraham lincoln, i always put grant in the underappreciated category. there were a lot of clun
i've read speeches and worked on inaugural speeches and i remember both of lincolns, kennedys, fdr's. >> greta: i take it you don't remember lincolns from personal experience. >> no, but it's finer than the gettysburg address. the president's was not uplifting. it was not poetry, it was pros and part of it was pedestrian and partisan and i think he missed a golden opportunity. the whole country was watching and he should have lifted the whole country. this was part of a state of the union address and i thought the president lost an opportunity and they usually talk about what? and when i was a kid, lexington, concorde, bunker hill, stonewall, a barroom brawl in greenwich village in 1969 when the cops hassled the gays in the bar and threw them out. does that belong in a presidential inaugural? >> i thought, one thing he has been -- i mean, he speaks beautifully, inspires people. i thought he wasn't interested in his own speech. i don't think he sold it. i thought he just read it to us. i was actually quite surprised because whether you agree with him politically or not, he can just
high saying abraham lincoln's second inaugural is the most like he would like to emulate. danielle leigh is at the center of it all. >> reporter: good morning. it was a couple minutes ago that we saw the first people begin arriving for this public ceremony later this morning. we're expecting up to 800,000 people to crowd on to the national mall where i'm standing to watch history in the making. president obama taking the oath of office for the final time. all along where i'm standing there are big screens to help people get as close a view as possible, even as they are prodded several blocks back from where the ceremony is actually taking place. the president won't be sworn in until just before noon. the ceremony does begin much sooner, closer to 9:30. people are going to need to dress warm because it is chilly out here this morning. security force this event is tight. up to 150 blocks around where i'm standing are shut down. thousands of servicemen and officers are here dealing with crowd control and also security. there's also a 30 mile no fly zone. after the ceremony will be the
in history will go down with lincoln's second inaugural address as -- it's the manifesto of what liberals stand for rooted in the constitution and as the president said we take that promise that all of us are created equal and we are dedicated in making that a reality for everybody. he spelled it out today, and i thought it was magnificent. and i left there feeling just great. >> jennifer: i totally agree. christine what about you? >> i second everything that bill said. on martin luther king day as the saying goes rosa parks road to that martin luther king could march and barack obama could run, and so we would all fly. it was so magnificent for him to take the spirit of dr. king the civil rights movement, take the american story and including everybody in it from our newest americans to our oldest citizens, and when he said our social safety net does not make us weak you could hear the oh throughout the whole crowd. >> jennifer: where were you christine? >> i was up to the president's right. we had a great view of the president and it was really really exciting. we
get through the speech without a reference to lincoln's second inaugural? we will have doris kerns goodwin on hands tomorrow, who wrote the book, just in case. i think is something probably liberating. second terms are for legacy. second terms can be fraught and problematic. >> you have a big day tomorrow. >> as do you. >> our inaugural coverage begins tomorrow morning on "today," and brian then leads our extended coverage throughout date here on nbc. >>> there will be an inaugural poem read during the ceremony here tomorrow and this year, the poet is richard blanco, born in spain to cuban exiles to emigrated to this country, the first latino and first openly gay poet. today, we spoke to him about his connection to president obama and here's part of what he had to say, in his own word tos. >> the connection to the inaugu theme of future to me symbolizes the salt of the earth that was my family. you know that their hard work that we are all in this together, that it takes -- it takes a village kind of feeling. and so, the thing i identified by a lot. part of the life story that alwa
as lincoln. bill, thank you very much. now from weather to sports, skipping over traffic. the only story that could possibly share shelf space with the lance armstrong confessional is the bizarre hoax involving the heisman trophy runner up, mr. manti te'o and his alleged girlfriend who never existed. going to bring back the sports editor for the nation. what's the latest that's gone on late last night and overnight? what do we know about what notre dame is doing? >> well, the latest with manti te'o is silence. with each day of silence comes more questions. it's like you know very well from politics, usually the cover-up is far more damaging than the crime. yesterday there were reports that manti te'o was going to do a press conference. that was scuddled. then an interview on espn. that was scuddled. now he's inside a compound where he's preparing for the nfl draft. you have reporters camped outside as if it's some sort of situation outside an embassy. what's going on with manti te'o? it's getting so much attention. as you referenced, this is the most bizarre story i've ever seen in sport
. and the other by abraham lincoln. the president and his family will attend a private prayer service at st. john's church across the street from the white house. at 10:00, the president heads to the white house to have coffee with congressional leaders. then at 11:55 a.m., the main vent. president obama will take the oath of office with the help of chief justice john roberts. today is expected to take on a less than euphoric tone of four years ago yet they're still going to hit on familiar themes like overcoming the bitter political divide in washington. senior obama adviser offered this preview. >> i think it's going to be a hopeful speech. i'll let the president speak for himself, obviously. but what he's going to do is i think remind the country that our founding principles and values still can guide us in a changing and modern world. he's going to talk about the fact that our political system doesn't require us to settle all of our differences. but it doesn't compel us to act where there should and in his common ground. >> organizers are also expecting far fewer people compared to more than
two great ones. you have the one you just mentioned, lincoln's second, probably the greatest in history. >> phenomenal. >> more theological than political. f.d.r.'s second where he talked about a third of the nation, you know, is very effective. even jefferson used his ticket to wine about the press attacking him. >> in looking into this will second term, how long does the president generally have in a second term before people just kind of write him off as the ultimate lame duck? >> he's usually got about 18 months before. it isn't even so much they write him off as a lame duck at that point. it's that all of the focus shifts for the off-year election. >>. >> uh-huh. >> i think obama has even less because the partisan move is so nasty. >> that's what makes it so important that you only have a year. >> right. and he sort of indicated that, i guess, you know so far as we have seen on guns, immigration reform. it may be climate change. right? of course continuing on the economy. you. >>. >> you keep coming back to that. you need to create
of the party or a stick in the mud. >> president obama hosted a screening of the movie "lincoln," and press reports show he invited them, they all inclined to attend. president obama has invited john boehner to six state dinners, boehner declined all six times, he did accept president george bush's to a state dinner for the meaningless queen elizabeth. president obama invited senate minority leader mitch mcconnell to two state dinners, and to celebrate the basketball team from his home state. mcconnell declined all those invitations. and president obama invited all newly elected members of congress to the white house for a reputation. less than half of the freshmen republicans attended. joining me now, howard fineman, in my experience, this socializing thing is the most overrated legislative strategy imaginable. i have never seen it matter in any way at all. if booze could do this it would have fixed a lot of things a lot easier a long time ago. >> yes, of course, and booze consumption in d.c. exceeds that in other years of the country, with the possible exception of las vegas. there was a
for the president and i even have a prayer that as he and others handle the lincoln bible and the king bible, that the bible won't just be a ceremonial piece, but it will be so compelling that they'll be moved not only to read some of it, but to do it. and yet, we're talking now about gun control, and not taking up that weapon of love, that weapon that never fails. and we are want to go control the guns and take the guns away, but allow others to use them with certain restrictions and no restrictions, but forgetting that message of the love, and that's one of the points and yet we'll realized the killing of a certain people group in america and that's the little babies in the womb of course, and still, you want to take away the guns, but you're not going to control the abortion industry. so, there are some discrepancies between the message of the current administration and the whole nation and the whole world today, and those messages that are timeless from martin luther king, jr., and it it boils down, governor, to love for our neighbors and ourselves. >> mike: you've pointed out roe versus
it is in getting there, it doesn't matter. >> cenk: i get that point. if you watch lynn lincoln, it's not like the 13th amendment is pretty. i'm thrilled with the progressive ending, don't get me wrong. some people are less than thrilled to seeing president obama using martin luther king jr.'s bible. >> when i got the news that my dear brother, barack obama was going to hut his precious hand on martin luther king jr.'s bible, i got upset. >> brother martin luther king jr. what would you say about the new jim crow? what would you say about the industrial complex, what would you say about the invisibility of so many of our prisoners so many of our incarcerated, especially when 62% of them are there for soft drugs but not one executive for the wall street bank going to jail. [applause] not one. ! martin doesn't like that. not one wiretapper not one torcher under the bush administration at all. then what do you say about the drones being dropped on our precious brothers and sisters in pakistan somalia and yemen. >> cenk: dr. cornell west said that on thursday in poverty in america panel. chris, do
to it or even if i'm not a king or founding father or lincoln, having that purpose, that sense of direction, the north star is what we should strive for. and striving for things is actually what creates something worthwhile, even if you fail. >> joy, your general reaction? >> i thought it was wonderful, i thought yes, we can, still is the best speech that i have heard. he walked away from that sort of rhetoric, because he needed to communicate basically about policy. this was not about policy. but at the same time it was the most forthright delivery. he took liberalism which has been put aside as somehow being apart from the founding creed, had he said yes, we value individualism, even that little girl born with nothing, has a right, has a shot to have a chance. >> we'll be right back, we'll get one more look. make 70,000 t. ♪ reach one customer at a time? ♪ or help doctors turn billions of bytes of shared information... ♪ into a fifth anniversary of remission? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and services to help you solve it.

"lincoln." >> state dinners. >> the majority leader's office called later and said, yeah, we got the invitation that afternoon, four hours beforehand. but you invite congressmen and senators over, one on one, they'll come. >> there is an upside to cooperation. not every battle is one of opposition. begin to reframe the image of the party with the rest of the country, number one. at the end of the day, that's what people want to see, you working with the administration. to joe's point, you don't have to agree with everything, but you can at least stand there and show that we're trying to make the effort. so when you have the noise come out about, well, we want to block him at every turn, that plays on the psyche of the american people. >> mike, what'ses in it f in it republicans? well, the republicans' backs are against the wall. they owned the house of representatives. they have a midterm election in 2014. for those republicans saying, oh, well, we always win midterm electio elections, no, you don't. two elections ago, we get routed by nancy pelosi. >> let's get to a break. we ha
is lincoln's second inaugural. you know, what you want to do is call attention to, you know, this is a speech that speaks to all americans. not just to your constituency. call attention to the values that can unite us and move us forward. there's not too much more you can do in that context. >> michael, thank you very much. >>> speaking of the values that unite us, this week as we remember the life and legacy of the reverend martin luther king jr., we've got something very special to share with you. previously unreleased interviews with dr. king in atlanta have now been discovered. the 32-year-old civil rights leader was then talking about how at the age of 5 years old he first became conscious of racism and how his mother tried to instill a sense of pride over inferiority in those difficult times. >> it seems to me that the only thing the mother can do, the negro mother, is to try from the beginning to instill in the child a sense of somebody-ness. this is what my mother tried to do. she made it very clear that in spite of these conditions, you are as good as anybody else, and you must not f
's short letter. most second inaugural speeches are shorter. lincoln's second was short and washington's, i think it's shorter, more concise and the president, if he wants to create a memorable inaugural needs one or two things. it's not a state of the union, not a laundry list, it's one or two themes, if he talked about fixing the broken politics in washington, which we know is hackneyed and needs repair or long-term entitlement reform, one or two big things and stuck with that, i think that'd be better off than creating a laundry list of stuff. >> steve: sure, the laundry list comes with the state of the union and you and everybody else will see the president take the oath, the ceremonial oath and speech at noon on fox. thanks steve. >> steve: you bet. a group overcome treacherous seas to victory in one of the world's most dangerous races. modeled for success. it does a body good. and also the secret to winning yourself a nobel peace prize? sign us up! ♪ >> all right. it's one of the most dangerous ocean races around. sailing from sydney, australia to taz mania, in 1998 a group of amat
